‘NO ZEBRA CROSSING’ AN EXHIBITION BY ANNA MOORE

Officially opened by Dr Kathy Glavanis-Grantham Sat 16th April at 3pm in Garter Lane Arts Centre, admission free, all welcome.

Garter Lane Arts Centre Waterford is pleased to present No Zebra Crossing, an exhibition by Co Waterford artist, Anna Moore. The large scale acrylic paintings are an emotional response to over three years the artist spent working with the San of Namibia, (previously known as ‘Bush men’).No Zebra Crossing by Anna Moore-1

The deep respect that the San have for the land taught Anna to experience the Kalahari desert on many different levels. The large paintings reflect the colour and vastness of the Namibian desert landscape. One painting is twelve feet long, another stretches to twenty four feet. They are also a response to the effects of colonisation, exploitation and overgrazing of the land. This highlights the further marginalisation the San people. Yet in spite of almost complete destruction of their traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle, the San people have never lost their love and respect for the land and their culture. This has inspired her work.

This exhibition was on show earlier this year at the James Barry Exhibition Centre, CIT and the artist would like to acknowledge the support of Cork Institute of Technology Arts Office in presenting this body of work.

Fifteen percent of the proceeds from this exhibition will go to the San of Omaheke in the Kalahari in Namibia.
